  •  they're anti-union (0+ / 0-)

    and foreign-owned, if that makes a difference to you. The store which opened up here in St. Paul recently had some union controversy. Trader Joe's is owned by the same German billionaire who owns Aldi, a sort of mini-wal mart.

    I don't not shop at nonunion stores - I don't really have that choice where I live - but Trader Joes isn't doing anything to earn additional points from me to get me to shop there. They don't make much effort on locally sourced products either.

    That's how I look at it at this point - if a store wants me to go out of my way to do business with them, they need to give me a reason. Trader Joe's is fun, but other than a once-ever-two-months or so treat, I don't go out of my way to go there.
